The Statewide Standard Course Code system is used to load a single file containing course code mappings. A mapping shows the relationship between the Local Education Agency's local course code to a statewide standard course code. The Colorado Department of education uses the SCED version 3.0 codes for the statewide standard course codes. The course code mappings are required as part of the Teacher Student Data Link collection.
For the 2015-2016 school year the Colorado Department of Education will continue to support SCED 2011, SCED version 2.0, and SCED version 3.0. In the 2016-2017 year the SCED codes which were removed as part of the evolution to SCED version 2.0 and SCED version 3.0 will be inactivated. Local Education Agencies will be required to update any mappings containing deprecated SCED codes.
